Parents, especially mothers have an interesting effect on their children.Good bad and ugly it’s more than just genes.It’s a soul transplant.When you teach your children something, you ensure your thoughts becoming immortal.It transcends time, space and person and trickles down through generations.What and how many people it will affect, is anyone’s guess.
This is powerful.That’s why parenting is a tough job.Looking back I have to say my mom didn’t have it easy.I was the “Why çhild.Impossible, persistent, innumerable whys.The queries never stopped, till she told me to find my answers and showed me the treasure troves called books.Then I became a know it all.
Life has come a full circle.I am trying my best to answer the whys of my daughter.A mother’s help and guidance is a blessing.Sharing a few of my mom’s tips which help me every day.
5 tips Mommy Taught Me: Indian Mommy Life Hacks
Health is most important
That’s why my mother never forgot to pack two different snacks even when I was in college.One for lunch break,one for after school if there were extra classes.She says
Until you eat well you can’t concentrate!
That’s so true.Our brain needs glucose all the time and burns it up more when we are doing brain work.Makes sense right, to have nutritious munchies next to me, when I sat down to study.Apples, nuts, and raisins were always kept close by when I studied.This habit I am teaching my Rai too.What you learn unconsciously through habits, are as important as what you learn through books.
Never stop learning.
I love reading.Books are my friend, therapy for my mind.It’s relaxation and entertainment at the same time.Now I love reading blogs too.Can’t stop.It’s like the world’s largest library, which you can read all you want, whenever you want.

I am planning to buy a Kindle e-reader , to have my library on the Go.Yes, I have been talking about it for some time and wishing it will magically materialize.But not having luck with the magic part.Google seems to have few pages about creating objects with magic ,and none where a kindle reader is created.I think amazon may be my best option here.
Keep a piece of you always for you.
The place where you go to when everything seems to hurt.Life is a series of experiences, joys, and sorrow.But nothing lasts forever.When the times are tough, have a little island within yourself.This should be your safe place , likethatwhich will always support you no matter what.It’s like your personal cheerleader. No judging, just saying
Yes you can do it!
We need slike thatSometimes we are lucky.More often, you have to be that person yourself.
Never give up.Ever!
Call this persistence perseverance, stubborn whatever.That’s one advice I have taken to heart.I have never let anything stop me.Even when I haven’t always got what I thought I would, I have tried and tried.Till the end result surprised me.We have to do what we can, what happens is destiny.
